In the course of just one speech, the mind-boggglingly stupid piled on top of the just plain dumb is staggering.
Not only is is unable to name any newspapers or magazines that she reads, she doesn't watch the news -- rather, she's not allowed to.
At those times on the campaign trail when sometimes it's easy to get aPerfect symmetry. Low information voter, meet your low information candidate. But talk about your base-play. Her rallies really are more like tent revival meetings than political discourse. Check this out.

news when your campaign staffers will let you turn on the news," she

So, when she loses in historic fashion, will she blame her god, or will she hear a booming voice in her head that says, "Sister Sarah, something about you just chaps my ass." Her ability to bring the blather is remarkable. She claims she begged her speech writers not to make her talk about Joe the Plumber -- as if she isn't a capable adult fully able to simple decide not to bring the guy up.
